Blake Lively: I've had four boyfriends in my whole life
Blake Lively's "Gossip Girl" character Serena van der Woodsen has dated nearly every male character on the CW series, but the actress has revealed that she's only had a handful of relationships in real life.
"I've had four boyfriends in my whole life. I've never been with anyone that's not a boyfriend," Lively told Elle magazine for their March 2012 cover story. "If I spend time with a man, it's because there's somebody that I know well who has been a friend for a while."
The 24-year-old actress has been previously linked to actor Kelly Blatz and "Gossip Girl" co-star Penn Badgley. The two broke up in September 2010 after dating for about three years.
She also dated Leonardo DiCaprio, but it was announced in October 2011 that they had split up after about five months of dating.
Lively also told the magazine that she wants kids one day. The clothes horse and Chanel muse revealed that she is already preparing an inheritance.
"I hope to have a few girls one day. If not girls, they better be trannies. Because I have some amazing shoes and bags and stories that need to be appreciated," Lively joked.
Lively is currently dating her 35-year-old Canadian "Green Lantern" co-star Ryan Reynolds. The pair filmed the comic book flick 10 months prior to Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson's divorce filing, in December 2010.
Reynolds and Johansson, a 27-year-old New York native who starred in "Lost in Translation" and "Iron Man 2," wed on Sept. 27, 2008 in Canada after dating for about a year. They have no children.
In October, Lively helped celebrate Reynolds' birthday in Boston, where the actor was filming the action movie "R.I.P.D.," a Dark Horse comic book adaptation, which follows an undead police team.
When asked whether Lively was really looking for a New York apartment on Fifth Avenue as some outlets have reported, the actress told Elle, "Newspapers say a lot of stuff, don't they? Though I wish I could afford half the places that I hear I'm looking at. Sign me up!"
Lively portrays New York socialite Serena van der Woodsen on "Gossip Girl," which began its fifth season on September 26. The CW series celebrated its 100th episode on Monday, January 30 with a royal wedding.
Lively has also appeared in films like "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants," "The Private Lives of Pippa Lee" and "The Town."
